I think my dad might be speaking to me from the grave. Except he doesn't really have a grave. His ashes are at my sister Taresa's house in a comfortable place on her bookshelf, waiting for his eight daughters to come to a consensus on just what to do with him -- imagine that process for a second. But a few times I have been certain that I have received messages from him. Okay, so there's no obvious poltergeist activity -- no spooky moving objects or footsteps or even doors closing (and… Continue

Right before we go on and you lapidate me for what I have just said, let me explain what I mean by this.
You see, since the birth of Victor I have analysed and tried to understand the feelings I have. It has been months or shall I say from the moment I got pregnant with Victor that I have felt guilty for feeling this way.
When these 2 precious lines appeared I felt the same amount of joy and excitement than the first time, only to realise days later that it wasn't the… Continue

So what happens after you finally start to pick up some momentum on your blog? You finally start getting views in the double digits every day. You begin getting more comments. You're getting some pretty nice compliments on your blog - and then it happens. It all comes crashing down, and all of a sudden too! Your number of followers may start to drop, or site hits plummet. That's when you know you've lost your mojo.
This very thing happened to me this week. My writing blog had peaked… Continue

Munch got a special treat last weekend in the form of her cousin's 18th birthday party/debut. A big party was planned, with dancing, and Munch was looking forward to it for days. She made sure to wear her favorite party dress and was absolutely in love with all the older girls dressed up for the evening. After a delicious dinner, which included my favorites-… Continue

It has been an interesting few days at our house since I picked up the book by Dr. Kevin Leman, “Have a New Kid by Friday.”
Now I really truly HATE the title – I think it is rather misleading, but in any event I agree with nearly everything in it. It goes along the same lines as the… Continue

I am wondering which yarn works best for these? I use several types.
Also, I really need some more traffic to my blog. I need to get some more stuff up but I need to know how you mamas that are successful at blogging/selling through your blog do so w/little ones running around?
I find myself feeling guilty for crafting then blogging even though I still manage to entertain my son anyway... just curious how to manage it all.
I've been trying to do this for over a… Continue

Ever since the quirky Flight of the Conchords series appeared on HBO, people have been telling my husband that he looks like Jermaine Clement, the sideburned, black glasses-wearing, taller of the two musicians/comedians.
Skye hadn’t told me that he’s been receiving these comments from people everywhere he goes. He kept that unflattering observation to himself and sprung it on me after luring me into the mancave to watch the comedy that is woven around the theme of culture class, as… Continue

Over the past few months, I’ve come to connect with some really amazing women through blogging. I think it takes awhile to find your place in the blog-world, just like it does with any other thing in life. And I’ll be honest and say that I really didn’t think this would be a means to developing friendships.
I’ve exchanged some really great emails with some truly wonderful people. And lately these emails seem to be about infertility. I guess I am just drawn to posts about it. Writing… Continue

My Grandmother had an old saying. She used to say ‘Shut the hell up and stop complaining’
She also said ‘Get the hell out of my way, I’m missing my program
Well maybe not. I guess the apple really doesn’t

Why are we talking about my grandmother?
Oh, right….’Learn to type and you will always have a job’.… Continue
